  • Go to http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/visual-studio-certification.aspx

    It shows you all the available tracks. MCSD is the latest track launched 4 or 5 months back.

    Scroll to MCTS Visual Studio 2010 and chose certifications from there. They have single exam certificates for individual area of development like:

    Windows Application (70 511)

    Web Application(70 515)

    Data Access(70 516)

    Service Communication(70 513)

    Silverlight 4(70 506)

    Decide your are and get certified. But these are going to expire by July 31st this year.

    You can certainly go for MCSD track as well and there are 3 tracks there, chose the one you like.

    MCSD Web app (70480,70486,70487)

    MCSD Windows Store App with C# (70483,70484,70485)

    MCSD Windows Store App with HTML (70480,70481,70482)
